NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service New Orleans la 
425 PM CDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Short term... 
quiet day across the forecast area as high pressure continues to 
be the main feature driving our weather through tonight. 
Temperatures climbed into the 90s as showers and storms were 
absent across the area today. Most of the action today remained to 
the north over portions of north Mississippi as a shortwave moves 
across the southeast United States along a stalled frontal 
boundary. This has triggered a few strong to severe thunderstorms 
across Mississippi. The frontal boundary will be the focus of 
showers and thunderstorms for tomorrow as the boundary will slowly 
sink southward. A shortwave will ride along the boundary and 
should be a little bit more sharp and should kick off showers and 
storms across the forecast area for Independence day. Some of 
these storms could be strong to severe as the Storm Prediction 
Center has the area in a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms 
tomorrow. The good news is that the atmosphere is not overly 
conducive for severe storms as the shear is not impressive but 
the instability will be there. The triggers will be the 
shortwave...the frontal boundary...and sea breezes and lake 
breezes so there will be a lot of ingredients laying around the 
forecast area tomorrow. The main threat from the storms will be 
strong gusty winds...frequent lightning and heavy rain. The timing 
of the storms should be tomorrow afternoon and evening. If you 
have outdoor activities planned please stay aware of the forecast 
and aware of the storms that could be in the area. High 
temperatures will be held down slightly for Sunday with convective 
temperatures generally in the middle and upper 80s. 13/mh 


Long term... 
both GFS and European model (ecmwf) have come in better agreement in regards to 
forecast next week. As in previous discussion the mention of 
removing precipitation out of the forecast for next week did not 
completely happen but I have decreased rain chances from Tuesday 
on to less than 20 percent. Have continued to maintain a blended 
approach for all other elements in the forecast as temperatures 
climb into the low to middle 90s next week. 13/mh 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions will remain this afternoon through Saturday morning. 
Scattered cumulus deck will dissipated around 23z this afternoon. 
Convection if any should remain limited in coverage through tonight. 
Scattered convection is expected Saturday afternoon. Only mention 
prob30 ts for gpt and mcb for now. 18 


&& 


Marine... 
Bermuda ridge pattern to maintain light southerly flow 
for the forecast period. Squall line generation from frontal zone 
over the Tennessee and middle-Mississippi Valley may bring a threat of 
high winds onto the tidal lakes late Saturday afternoon and early 
evening. Otherwise...light winds and low seas expected through 
Tuesday night. 18 


&& 


Decision support... 
dss code....blue. 
Deployed...none. 
Activation...none. 
Activities...river flood warnings on Mississippi River from Red 
River Landing to Baton Rouge.
